A message from Adam Garland, Squire of the Morris Ring 2014-2016

Dear Nicki

I have recently read your report from the Morris Ring ARM as included in Dancing On (Spring edition).
I am so pleased that your visit to our ARM was a welcoming occasion and that you left feeling the trip was a useful one. I am aware than in the past our friends from the Open Morris and Morris Federation have not always enjoyed a positive experience but I have tried to build on the work of the JMO over the last 5-10 years and continue to foster closer relations between us all.
At the time of writing this I have three months to go in my tenure and can honestly say that my time as Squire has been a rewarding one. It is heartening to hear that my efforts have been successful.
I will be pleased to hand over in September knowing that we are all working closely together, that the Morris Ring is making steps in the right direction, and that, as you say, the future does indeed look hopeful.

Many thanks and best regards

Adam Garland
Squire of the Morris Ring 2014-2016
